On the last Saturday of every month during suggested donation hours, ICP Community Days offer guided tours, family-friendly workshops, and special events, including tours in English, Mandarin, Spanish, and American Sign Language. Community Day is one of many new and ongoing initiatives that strive to strengthen accessibility to ICP's exhibitions, educational programs, and public events and embrace the diverse communities of the Lower East Side.
During ICP’s temporary closure, Community Day will continue to take place online through virtual programming for all ages including workshops, story times, curated reading lists, and digital educational resources. Visitors can also access audio guides of ICP’s current exhibitions in up to 10 languages through Gesso, and see more ways they can engage with ICP from anywhere.
For March Community Day, visitors of all ages are invited to join us online for We Reign Supreme: Crown-making & Self-honoring Workshop inspired by ICP’s current exhibition, Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop. Crowns have been used to signify honor, value, status, and more. What is your symbol of self-honor? What does your crown look like? Is it a traditional crown, headwrap, your hair or that special hat? Participants will explore the symbolic use of crowns across cultures and artistic disciplines and design their own crown using materials available at home.
Registration is FREE but please RSVP in advance. Workshops will be held online through Zoom. A link with instructions to join the workshop will be emailed to you before the workshop. Learn how to download the latest version of Zoom to your computer or mobile device.
